    Default Wi Fi diagnostics.

    Has anyone tried the cheap Wi Fi diagnostic plug in readers ($15 TO $25 ) off the net. Can be used in conjunction with iPhone etc.
    Just seen a demo on you tube, looks simple and effective.

    I have one that is bluetooth with Torque program for Android or use ScanXL for Windows. I would rate it as essentially useless, the stuff that it shows on my 407 I either don't want to know or I already have that info from the cars own instrumentation.

    Things like ABS, which is what I wanted it for, it doesn't do. The sellers claim that any item that isn't supported is because your car is not completely OBD2 compliant.

    Looks like I may need to fork out the $55 and buy PP/diagbox out of China.

    Exactly; it's so affordable now but doesn't appeal to the gimmick lovers.

    I just want to clear my engine fault code. If these devices don't have the ability to reset the engine management computer it may be a waste of money. Hope the dealer will do the reset on wednesday.

    If the problem has gone, after a predetermined number of starts the fault will be relegated to historical, not current. In this instance, the fault light/message should not reappear.

    I use a bluetooth ebay $20 job on my 2003 c5 to clear codes and check oil temp/coolant temp, etc.

    Check my previous post
    Bluetooth ECU scanner for Citroen c5 (2003) from ebay. It works!
